Beetroot and Goat Cheese Mini Quiches have ruby red interior with a white center of fresh goat cheese and a cup made the “rösti way” with seasoned grated potato for an extra colorful and fun bite. When you like a combination of 2 ingredients like I do, in this case it’s beetroot and goat cheese, you need to find many ways to enjoy it!  It’s a simple, light and fun recipe which goes well with a nice green salad and a drizzle of balsamic cream. Also a nice polyvalent bite to eat whether cold or warm making it suitable for picnics, express lunch or even a snack. Or it could also go to perfection for those special event like Mother’s day or Valentine’s day. The potato cups The potato cups are similar to a “rösti”  which consist of squeezing out all the juice from the potato and adding a touch of flour, oil and seasonning. All there…

The beauty of this meal is: it’s polyvalence, whether you eat your quiche warm, or cold… or change the vegetable in it… if you feel like mushrooms or ham etc. Go ahead make those with whatever you feel like. A mini Quiche Lorraine maybe? the original one with smoked pork belly bits, which is slightly less healthy… but Oh! so delicious! If your metabolism allows you, go ahead and make some nice mini lard and cheese ones. I’ve chose my favorite spring vegetable; the green asparagus, also a bit of leeks and gruyère to make it extra tasty!

For this dish, I’ve used the filo (phyllo)…
